Ahimsa a vegan brand that prioritizes love. From the start they have chosen to walk a path carved by their beliefs: Question Habits, Provoke Change, Without Harm and with lots of respect. We were born to make a difference in the lives of animals and round us.
The idea to found Ahimsa was born out of necessity felt by its founder Gabriel Silva, a vegan himself who was unable to find vegan shoes that had visual appeal, comfort and were also made ethically considering the environment and the workers. Most vegan shoes are made of synthetic materials, which in turn are made mostly from oil residues. That did not seem right for him. From there a long process of research was started to find sustainable materials to make a whole product line. Throughout this process, Gabriel was helped by his father, Cisso Silva, who has been in the shoe market for over 30 years.
Our focus is to simply make the best (comfort wise and also visual appeal) vegan and also sustainable shoes and accessories in the market.
Currently our line of products consists of male and female shoes and also unisex accessories.
We run our own factory, exclusive to our brand, that maintains a high level of cleanliness, work quality and workers compensation. That amount of work is unheard of worldwide in the industry. We do that to maintain a very healthy work environment and to also further ensure product quality. All Brazilian regulations regarding workers compensation and benefits are met and surpassed.
Also, all the trash that is made at the plant is recycled. Even the leftover canvas is collected to be made into new materials to be used on our line (without reusing water)
